This magnificent example of African carved wood depicts a pair of Cape buffalo. Each bookend is carved from a single piece of wood, making them substantial and quite heavy, with the pair weighing over five pounds. There is also a wonderfully carved design around three sides of the base and also around the portion that is behind each buffalo.
TIME PERIOD: I am unsure of the age of these, but they have been in my personal collection for over 20 years, closer to 25, and were purchased used, so I would date them to be at least 30 years old.
CONDITION: The condition of the bookends is good, with a few marks or scratches here and there, but nothing that detracts from the beauty.
SIZE: Each measures approx. 8 1/2" tall and 8" wide
